    Your question is a little unclear. Are you refering to the forearm which slides over the magazine tube? There are threads on the end of the tube that hold the forearm in place. Or are you refering to the butt stock.

    If it is the butstock I believe you can replace the mainspring housing. I think they are soldered into the receiver.

    Any competent gunsmith can replace that tube.

    A quick search I found this. Tube is about ten bucks fron remington along with a new nut for 4.00 or so. I lucked out and was able to clean up the threads with a 11/16 x 32 die. Then a new nut at local gun store. Make sure you got the washers in there. good luck.

    Scroll down to 1100/1187 repair, Also note the warning on discoloration do to heat in the soldering process. May need rebluing?

    I know this tube can be shortened SLIGHTLY, i've seen it done. I'll bet if you find the right smith, it can probably be cut off and rethreaded. Someone on here might have info on someone who can do this.
